The Blues Band
27 February – Plowright Theatre, Scunthorpe
The Blues Band - Over 40 Years and 'Back for More'
Paul Jones, Dave Kelly, Tom McGuinness, Rob Townsend and Gary Fletcher are The Blues Band.
Many of the Blues Band’s 21st century fans weren’t even born when these five virtuosos, already music industry veterans, decided to fly in the face of musical fashion in 1979 and form a band ‘just to play the blues’. No one could have predicted that, 40 years on, they’d still be dazzling audiences with their showmanship and virtuosity.
Over 20 albums and thousands of gigs later, they’ve earned a reputation around the world as one of the finest exponents of the blues tradition in all its forms. With this line-up, it’s hardly surprising.
